Fungi everywhere -4

I obtained a pack of home-made cake from bakery but failed to check the manufacturing and expiry dates on the label. I placed the packet in refrigerator. As I opened the pack after 2 days, I saw some white cottony, fuzzy patches on the cake. At other end I saw greenish patch. I took a sample from the different patches and observed it under foldscope to see whether it was one species or different species. The cake being porous, the fungal hyphae could have spread all over and within. I threw the infected cake in the bin to avoid any health hazards.
